For more than 40 years we’ve been combining our academic excellence with industry expertise, to innovate and make positive change for the future of global energy.
The University of Aberdeen has a long history of delivering innovative solutions that address current and future energy challenges. Being situated in Aberdeen, Europe’s Energy Capital and a city renowned throughout the world for technological development and inspiring solutions, we are best placed and well connected to understand the needs of the industry and make a real difference.
Our energy work provides a focus for all areas of energy-related research, with an emphasis on supporting industry and policy makers in the transition to clean, sustainable energy and renewables. Our expertise is hugely varied and spans the generation and storage of energy, reuse of materials and the challenges of decommissioning, the requirements of technology and digitalisation. We also address the energy transition within the oil and gas industry and inform the policy, societal and environmental impact and sustainability of our future energy requirements.
A new software tool has been developed to improve the design and efficiency of Hybrid Renewable Energy Systems.
A £38 million partnership between the University and the Oil and Gas Technology Centre (OGTC), the NDC has been established to support decommissioning activity with academic excellence and industry expertise.
Cutting-edge technology developed at the University reduces downtime and costs by allowing companies to analyse oil samples on site.
Our researchers are supporting a European project to reduce pollution, congestion and emissions in urban areas.
A tool was developed to examine the environmental impact of peatland windfarms on carbon emissions.
